evakes Posted February 7, 2014 Report Share Posted February 7, 2014 The Ancient Greek philosophers have played a pivotal role in the shaping of the western philosophical tradition. So, I took the initiative to start a thread where any of us can post our favorite quotation and trigger interesting conversations!My favorite, among others, quote is "Παν μέτρον άριστον" / "Pan Metron Ariston" , which means "Everything in moderation"Τhis quote is attributed to Kleovoulos o Lindios (6th century BC.) and there are many who claim that the right quote is "Μέτρον Άριστον" / "Metron Ariston" because its translation in modern Greek has more meaning."Everything in moderation"This quote has a lot of meaning in many aspects of our lives. Ancient Greeks strongly believed that you should live your life choosing the mean and avoid the extremes on either side, as much as possible.Because having both qualities produces harmony; goodness and beauty.I like this quote because I believe that implementing this value in our lives and passing on this way of thinking to the next generations, could really improve our life quality.[move]I look forward to your quotes and opinions![/move] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
